3D Scanning & Digital Modeling – Models from 3D Scans
By using specialized non-contact, non-destructive technology to digitally capture the shape of physical objects, we’re able to create “point clouds” of data from the surface of an object. In this way, we’re able to capture a physical object’s exact size and shape and save it as a digital 3-dimensional representation, or model.
We can capture free-form shapes or structured shapes, which means that 3D scanning is well-suited to the measurement and inspection of all kinds of surfaces no matter how contoured or complex their geometries are. Because this type of replication requires massive amounts of data to accurately describe the shape, it is impractical to use traditional measurement methods or a touch probe.
A 3D model is a digital representation of a physical object. If you have an object, and you want it in a digital form, we’re the people to come to. We can capture and transform any object into a 3D digital model. But we do more than just 3D scan…
We process the raw point cloud data into a 3D digital model that you can bring into your 3D CAD program to reverse engineer, redesign, or use as a starting point for more advanced designs.
A 3D digital model is very versatile. Some companies use them for comparative analysis of an object, or even FEA and CFD analysis. Museums, historical societies, and archaeologists use 3D models for archival purposes as well as comparative analysis. They can be used to digitally repair the damage that has been done to an object so that the object can be reproduced in its proper form using rapid prototyping and milling technologies.
Bottom line… our 3D scanning service empowers you to recreate almost any object into a 3D digital format that can be used for just about anything you want.
Are there Any Limitations?
We have the ability to capture objects indoors or outdoors, during the day or at night. We can capture very small objects and very large objects, including buildings. Most of our customers send small items to us for scanning, but if you have very large objects, please contact us to make arrangements for us to come to you
